SkyGrid Flight Control is enabling a new era of autonomous aviation. The app makes it easy for drone operators to explore the airspace, automate flights, and get real-time insights.
It provides a map of airspace classes, restrictions, weather, elevation, and more to show where it’s safe to fly. It enables drone operators to automatically generate and execute a safe flight plan based on their mission criteria. It allows operators to get real-time flight authorization in controlled airspace through our partnership with the FAA. And it’s the only app that provides AI computer vision to detect objects, such as people, vehicles and animals, through a drone’s live video feed.
How is it innovative? SkyGrid Flight Control will disrupt a wide variety of industries. It allows health officials to monitor social distancing in public places during the pandemic. It enables emergency teams to quickly assess damage following a natural disaster and inform a more effective response. It allows wildlife managers to monitor endangered animals and protect them from poachers. And it enables security teams to surveil critical infrastructure and identify intruders that may pose a security threat.
Why did SkyGrid create this app? There are two primary challenges with today’s drone solutions: 1) They require too many manual workflows that limit scalability and leave room for error in the rapidly changing airspace. 2) They’re disconnected, requiring drone pilots to use several different tools to check airspace conditions, plan and execute missions, and gather insights. We created SkyGrid Flight Control as an all-in-one app to simplify drone operations and automate every phase of flight.
What sets us apart?
1. Our app is the only free, all-in-one solution: It enables drone pilots to check airspace conditions, get FAA approval, plan and execute flights, and gain insights in one unified solution that’s free to use.
2. Our app is highly automated: It minimizes the manual workflows by automating every phase of flight from airspace approvals to flight planning and execution to object detection.
3. Our app is powered by AI and blockchain: It’s the only drone solution built on AI and blockchain technologies. Our AI computer vision detects people and objects in real time, while our blockchain technology protects flight data integrity.
